Highlights of Venezuela

Venezuela, also known by its official name as The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a tropical country on the northern coast of South America. It is a continental region with numerous islands situated off its shoreline in the Caribbean. A former Spanish colony, the country is now famous for its thriving petroleum industry, and is acknowledged as one of the most urbanized countries in Latin America. Anyone who plans to visit Venezuela is sure to have a most exciting and memorable journey ahead. The country is replete with so many natural attractions visitors often wish for a longer stay. Here you will find Angel Falls resting in the Guiana Highlands, the world's highest waterfall. Venezuela also has South America's second longest river, spectacular falls and numerous pristine beaches. It is also the entryway to Aruba, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Netherlands Antilles.


Simon Bolivar International Airport (IATA; CCS), known as Maiquetia Airport is the main international airport. It is a near thirty-minute ride from the city of Caracas. You can travel non-stop from the United States of America and most major European cities. There are also international flights to Valencia and Maracaibo, but there are very few flight choices.


Airlines that service the airport with flights to the rest of Central America and South America are Aeropostal, Avianca, CONVIASA, Aerolineas Argentinas, LAN Chile, Lloyd, TACA and Copa Airlines. There are non-stop flights from Frankfurt (Lufthansa), Paris (Air France), Madrid (Air Europa, Iberia), Tenerife (Santa Barbara), Lisbon and Oporto (TAP), and Rome and Milan (Alitalia). Delta Airlines offers daily air travel from Atlanta. Continental Airlines links Caracas to Houston daily. American Airlines offers daily flights from San Juan, Miami, New York and Dallas. Taxes are paid at the airport for international departures, though some airline tickets might incorporate these taxes. Passengers are required to pay both the airport and departure tax.

Other Money-Saving Tips

There are cheap flights available to this paradise island of Venezuela. You can consider flying into Bogota, Columbia and get a connecting flight on one of South America's low-budget carriers; you can also take the bus or train to get between cities, or look for inexpensive flights on no-frills airlines. Aeropostal is the national airline, though other inexpensive airlines, like Gol Transportes Aereos, also fly to and from Venezuela. Another money saving tip is to look for flights that go through another major entryway city instead of flying direct. Since there are more flights and competition from these cities on inexpensive airlines, you'll definitely save cash over flying non-stop to your destination.

It is best to fly to Venezuela on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday since these days offer the cheapest airfare possible. Mondays are popular with business travelers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers, so you must avoid these dates. Peak holiday seasons, festivals and national events must also be avoided as tickets prices increase during these times.

In Closing

Venezuela is a mesmerizing country, truly blessed with the nature's bounty, and considered as among the world's most bio-diverse countries. It showcases varied wildlife in an array of sheltered habitats. Beyond doubt, anyone who visits will find himself or herself wanting to experience the country again and again.
